For all of us who begged and begged for the Mets to stop playing nice nice and go overslot to get talent, your pleas have been heard. Please read this article from Mike Silva’s blog.
About friggin time. I dont know too much about the guy who they signed but I and im sure alot of Met fans hope this is a sign of things to come. They have played to the commish’s tune for too long and are realizing the consequences. Mets are among the cheapest teams when it comes to the draft and as MLB Tonight put it a few weeks ago when discussing the Mets farm system “It has handcuffed them from producing stars”. I hope the Mets realize the real benefits from doing well in a draft soon and we can start pumping out prospects like an Ike Davis or David Wright. It has never been more important than what we see taking place now, as due to the lack of depth regarding talent in the farm im sure has played a hand in most of the hesitation on the part of Omar to acquire a much needed piece for this team which has a real shot at the post season.Â Keep this thing going Mets, being on the commissioners “good side” doesnt bring people to the stadium and doesnt win championships…talent does.
